Invitation to the 47th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control
The 47th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control will be held Tuesday through Thursday, December 9-11, 2008 at the
Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach, Cancun, Mexico. The conference will be preceded by technical workshops on December 8, 2008.
The CDC is recognized as the premier scientific and engineering conference dedicated to the advancement of the theory and practice of systems and control. The CDC brings together an international community of researchers and practitioners to discuss new research results, perspectives on future developments, and innovative applications relevant to decision making, automatic control, and related areas. It is the first time that the CDC will be held in Latin America, in one of the most international cities of Mexico, and close to where the Mayan people built one of the new world wonders, the Chichen Itza pyramids and temples.
The 47thCDC will feature the presentation of contributed and invited papers, as well as tutorial sessions* and workshops.
The CDC is hosted by the IEEE Control Systems Society (CSS), and is organized in
cooperation with the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), the Institute for
Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), the Japanese Society
for Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE), and the European Union Control Association (EUCA).
Cancun is built
in a location that was named by the Mayan people for the large number of
snakes in the area. This world-class resort is now free of snakes but full
of wonderful cultural, social, and sports possibilities.
The conference venue is in the middle of
the ''Zona Hotelera'' or Tourist Zone, a narrow island 14 miles long.
Kukulcàn Blvd is the main thoroughfare
that dissects the island. Cancun boasts warm white sand beaches, crystal indigo seas, romantic Caribbean nights, world-class hotels and restaurants,
and nightlife for every taste and age. In and around Cancun, attendees can engage in world-renowned
fishing, diving and snorkeling, as well as visit archeological sites with a
wonderful Mathematical heritage.
On behalf of the 47thCDC organizing committee, Bienvenidos a Cancun!
